Strength-Based Spiritual Recovery, PhD, Treatment Center in Lake Forest

A Strength-Based Spiritual Solution to Addictions

At SBSRecovery, we begin by helping our clients to identify their signature strengths, then we teach them how to use their strengths to manage their weaknesses and addictions. While their addictions are being managed, we also teach them how to move beyond themselves and become more fully connected interpersonally and Spiritually, by teaching them how to utilize their signature strengths in the service of others and The Devine.

Our Multidisciplinary Team

Our team at Strength-Based Spiritual Recovery, are staffed with only Doctoral Level Clinicians trained in Psychodynamic therapies, including Object Relations and Interpersonal Psychology, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapies, such as DBT and ACT. Our holistic approach to recovery integrates Positive Psychology with well established evidenced based assessments and treatments, all built on a strong Spiritual foundation.

What makes us unique?

Our practice is unique, in that we DO NOT ONLY focus on mental illness, we also focus on Mental Health. We believe that any treatment that focuses only on illness, what is wrong, shameful and embarrassing, is not only likely to fail, but at best only addresses half of their client's needs. We recognize that the set of skills that are needed to overcome an illness or addiction, and return to base-line functioning, is not the same set of skills that are needed to move from base-line into living a full and happy life. Our program's strength is that we integrate these two seemingly opposite arms of treatment to not just help our clients to heal, but to flourish.
